CEC has successfully completed numerous detailed evaluations of remedial alternatives, including dozens of RCRA facility investigations/corrective measures studies and Remedial Investigations/Feasibility Studies at RCRA and CERCLA sites. We have developed innovative approaches to corrective actions which have saved our clients millions of dollars by changing the proposed remedy even after it was accepted by the agency.
CEC believes that contamination should generally be treated at the site whenever possible to minimize the risks and costs associated with handling and transporting hazardous wastes. How this contamination is treated depends on the nature of the materials, site characteristics, and regulatory permitting requirements, all of which can make one remedial alternative more effective and practical than another.
As mentioned above, CEC has performed dozens of RCRA investigations throughout the east and Midwestern United States. Several of these projects have been Environmental Indicators investigations for Fortune 500 companies in the metals, petroleum and chemicals industries. Large-scale RCRA projects with dozens of SWMUs are being conducted for industrial companies throughout the United States. Environmental Indicator issues are being addressed in West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Indiana. Superfund facility investigations, remedial design and postclosure services are being conducted for potential responsible parties in Pennsylvania, New York, and South Carolina.
Some services frequently provided for our industrial clients include:
- Environmental liability assessments (Phase I & Phase II Site Assessments)
- Environmental policy development
- Financial risk analysis
- Multi-media compliance audits
Projects are graded on their magnitude, innovative brownfield techniques, environmental regulatory issues, site selection and community impact.
CEC has submitted grant applications and successfully secured grants for our clients, in addition to assisting with amendments to existing grants. Funds are used to remediate environmental impairments at project sites, beginning with the initial investigation of a brownfield site for future redevelopment.
